Blog Your Interests
Do you have an interest in anything you want to share with others? Are you learning something new that you want to document? Are you excited about this new interest and want to keep the thrill alive?
This year I got interested in coin collecting? How? Well I had promised someone for two years I would learn more about coin collecting so I could help her sell her coins. I knew that she could just take them to a dealer but I also knew that it helps if you know a little before you go. Why? Because not all dealers are the same. I did not want her to take a rare coin to a shop and have someone devalue it.
Well, to make a long story short, I started reading books on coin collecting. Then I found a dealer who actually started to teach me about coin collecting. ( I have spoken to several dealers but he has been the best and most patient.) This baby boomer is hooked. I am more hooked on error coins.For me the idea of finding one is better than the lottery.
Now, what did I do? You guessed it. I started a blog on coin collecting. Now, I did not position myself as an expert but someone who is learning about coin collecting and wanted to share with others as I learn.You can view a post I just made tonight on error coins on this site called Baby Boomer Pocket Change.
So what does this mean for you? You can start now to reflect on an interest that you have. What are you reading? What are you learning?What are your learning goals?
Tip#1 If you are reading books on your topics you can share information about those books as an affiliate link in your blog!
Tip#2 If you want to create an ebook or special report you can after several posts by clearing defining your categories and create a pdf document from your posts.
Tip #3 If you are in any social network you can join groups related to your blog interest and send traffic to your site.
So after you read this please reflect on your interests. Remember the more you are learning about that area of interest the more blogging you will do that will reinforce what you learn. Who knows, you just might become an expert.
I just had a conversation with a friend today who said she was considering hiring someone to blog for her because she didn’t know what to write about. I think I’ll send her a link to this post. Good info and points.
I think I take blogging for granted becauae I’m a writer but I can see where people may feel “shy” about putting their words down for all the world to see.
